What are our burdens?

by Colin Dexter

Matthew 11:28-30    New International Version (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

In Jesus day the Pharisees put heavy burdens on the people with strict adherence to numerous rules & regulations.This was a “heavy burden”.  The  “burden” that Jesus puts on us is light because he daily bears our burdens. Sometimes we choose to carry the “burden” all by ourselves but we need to change our attitude. Take everything to God in prayer. (Pray naturally about everything)
